    I don't care how it was done, but the results are simply breathtaking.
  2. If trains are your bag, this is your program. There are other train simulators out there, but this is bar none the most polished, most complete, and with a company like Microsoft backing it up, likely to be the best supported of them all.
  3. MTS will provide hours of deeply immersive entertainment. Those not seeking that experience are gently urged to look elsewhere.
  4. One of the best things about Train Simulator is that like its flying cousin, this is basically an open-source graphics and physics engine that anyone can expand on and add objects, trains, routes, and activities to.
